Let us, the elected leaders of this association, remain forever vigilant to ensure that we have both the trust and the confidence of our membership. We have been chosen to be the protector of those who protect.

The men and women of this association uphold a sworn and solemn oath. They have chosen this profession to stand in the gap, to put themselves in harm’s way. We the leadership have also taken an oath and we must remain strong in our commitment to our members. We must lead by example and always remember that there is strength in unity.

So it is us, the elected leaders who must always be committed to making sure that our members are comfortable with the rewards of their commitments, and while making them comfortable, strive to always increase their rewards.
